The Oshkosh Student Association (OSA) has chosen Oshkosh Student Nurses Association (OSNA) to receive the Distinguished Student Organization Award.
OSNA is a pre-professional organization for students who are nursing majors at UW Oshkosh working to promote a supportive environment for nursing students and a healthy community for the campus.
“OSNA impacts and improves campus life by organizing and sponsoring, at minimum, three campus blood drives a semester,” said OSNA Public Relations Chair Felicia Vienola. “Each year OSNA holds a Cancer Survivors Dinner that brings together individuals that have survived cancer or are currently fighting it to share their unique emotional and physical experience with one another and students on campus.”
In addition, ONSA currently is running a pilot weight loss and physical fitness challenge in the College of Nursing. This challenge will raise money for the Tracy Lloyd Memorial Scholarship and help the students on campus be healthier.
Throughout the year, the association works hard to prepare students for their future within the Nursing profession to present nursing majors.
“We have started a mentoring program within OSNA,” OSNA President Meagan Propson said. “Anyone who is interested can contact OSNA, and a mentor will be assigned to help them through the admission process as well as with any other needs. Our goal is to help others who wish to be in our profession to be successful in reaching their goals.”
This announcement was submitted by the Oshkosh Student Association. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to contribute calendar items, campus announcements and other good news to UW Oshkosh Today.
